john mccain and lindsey graham that they would oppose her nomination to be secretary of state based on remarks she made about the benghazi attacks. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmerch her reputation is outrageous. >> indeed. let's get to our panel julian epstein, lynn sweet, washington bureau sweet for chicago "sun-times" and msnbc political analyst professor michael eric dyson of georgetown university. professor dyson,fy might begin with you, perhaps the most hated moment in that press conference was the president's barely concealed anger that republicans have been attacking ambassador susan rice for the confusion surrounding the benghazi consulate attacks. this, as you know, has been the drum beat from republicans from the right wing media for weeks. do you think the president's response will do anything to silence the drums? >> unfortunately
with general petraeus about what happened in benghazi? i think lindsey graham is right when he says we need to have an victories glowft of this incident but of this whole business, peggy. >> this is one of those what the heck is going on kind of moments where you have so many questions, as many people are saying off the record. this feels a little homeland, almost. you know what i mean? it's a little too mysterious. look, i come back to where i started. petraeus is a great guy. he has sacrificed for his country for 40 years. it is a shame to lose him over this. and i just have to ask why do we have to lose him over this? that actually makes no sense. >> schieffer: so do you think they moved too fast? >> i don't know what they knew. but it looks very strange. i do not understand why they could not-- i guess, i hope we'll find out why they-- why it wasn't a scenario in which they said, "okay, we've got a problem. we see a problem. general, you have to know this." he said, "i'm very sorry, that's over, move forward" i don't understand why you have to leave over this. >> there are a lot of peop
of compromise on the financial argument from republican senator lindsey graham. we'll get insight on the pretty thinking from his top strategist, david axelrod. then we'll go to our all-star panel of analysts. peggy noonan of the ""wall street journal"." david gergen of harvard university. dee dee myers of "vanity fair." and our own john dickerson. election 2012 is in the bookes, but the story is just beginning. and this is "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: good morning, again. on this veteran's day. and we begin with senator graham who is in clemson, south carolina. senator, thank you for coming. you are on the armed services committee, of course, so i want to start out with this out-of-the blue thunderbolt that hit washington friday concerning david petraeus the c.i.a. director. he resigned, saying he had exercised bad judgment and had an affair. cbs news and several other agencies have now confirmed that the f.b.i. got on to this after a third woman told them she had received threatening e-mails fro
and vice versa. >> exactly. i next want to turn to lindsay graham who said, if mitt romney loses and republicans say it was because he wasn't conservative enough he'll go nuts. senator, americans -- first of all, how are you doing today? have you gone nuts? i have heard a lot of republicans saying just that. >> well, i just think the honest truth is that we have a demographic problem. if we had had 40% of the hispanic vote mitt romney would be president. mccain got 31% and romney got 27%. we are going in the wrong direction. >> how do you change that? because you have extremes in your party who on the immigration issue don't want to see some sort of a compromise. >> well, yeah, here's what i want to see. i want to see a solution that will not lead to 12 million illegal immigrants 20 years from now. i want a comprehensive solution. that's all i ask, and i think that's all americans want. i think most hispanic voters didn't have a fondness for president obama. his job approval rating for them was about 50%. i think they saw him as the lesser of two evils between obama and us. he di
versa i should say. i appreciate that. i want to turn to lindsey graham who said if mitt romney l republicantates because he wasn't conservative enough he ll go nuts i have heard aot of republicans saying that. >> well, i just think the honest truth is that we have a demographic problem. spanicote mitt romyould be president. mccain got 31% and romney got 27%. we are going in the wrong direction. >> how do you change that? >> you have extremes in your party who on the immigration issue don't want to see a compromise. here is what i want to see, i want to see it lead to the 12 million illegal immigrants. i want a comprehensiveclusion and that is all i ask and almal most americans want. i can they saw him as a lesser of two evils between obama and us. he didn't lift a finger to do reform as he had promised. immigration is a national issue. it is an american issue and there is a solution to be found out there if people want to find it. americans are going to see massive tax increased. every american will feel the effects. what level of hope do you have that congress can come together
government. >>> listen to this, democratic senator chuck schumer says he and republican lindsey graham will restart immigration reform talks that crumbled two years ago, and schumer believes they could get a deal done, and soon. >> graham and i are talking to our colleagues about this right now and i think we have a darn good chance using this blueprint to get something done this year. the republican party has learned that being anti-illegal -- anti-immigrant doesn't work for them politically and they know it. >> key provisions of the plan include a path to citizenship for those already in the u.s., and stronger border security. did you catch this video? some payback on the track led to an all-out drawl during sunday's nascar race in phoenix. jeff gordon he's number 24, he intentionally took out number 15, clint bowyer, in response to an earlier bumping incident. or so that's what they call it. when gordon got back to the garage area, bowyer's crew went back. bowyer then tried to confront gordon later. but crew members managed to keep the two drivers apart. that helped a little later o
. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham said they want watergate-style hearings on benghazi and if you nominate susan rice to be secretary, they will do everything they can to stop that after her remarks on benghazi. >> i'm not going to comment on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, to besmirch her reputation
. every time you hear lindsey graham or somebody saying we've got to stop this, let's keep in mind -- >> bill: they did it. >> part of it. the bush era tax cuts were put in place for only ten years because they didn't want -- they didn't think they could get the 60 votes to extend them permanently. that created this -- a good part of the tax aspects of it. the same thing was true with the payroll tax expansion. they demanded a one-year cut to the end of the extension. there, they happened because of the deal on the debt ceiling last year. >> it came out of mitch mcconnell's office. harry reid went along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president
. >> reporter: republican senator lindsey graham is pushing for a committee to investigate all of this, saying it's grown too vast and intertwined for individual committees to investigate separately. >> thank you. president obama is putting together his cabinet for a second term, including a new cia director. so far, hillary clinton has confirmed she's going to leave. as bill plante reports, republicans already are objecting to her potential replacement. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. that's exactly right. cbs news has learned that the president is likely to nominate susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. white house sources say the president feels that he should be able to choose the cabinet members he wants, and they say that rice has done a good job on iran and north korea. but rice was the public face of the administration's initial response to the attacks in benghazi, libya, saying that they were prompted by spontaneous protests, not terrorism, and she's come under fire from republicans. when asked ab
connell, john cornyn, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss. now, if you're mitch mcconnell and we've been sitting there for years ago we would have had unanimity that niche was keening of the republican party in kentucky. and that was not even a contest for who was the utterly acknowledged leader. and we get to the 2010 elections and he put every resource he could to every attempt, every string he could pull to keep rand paul from winning the republican nomination. and failed mr. luther if your looking at this from mcconnell's perspective, knowing that several other republicans who ran for the senate this time would not promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell, and you know that you have the potential for a primary challenge at portage and no longer controlled, your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromised. if you're john cornyn, you would've stayed out of the race for the republican nomination for the senate this time around, but you sat back and watched as the very conservative and powerful lieutenant governor, the most powerful figure

that the general's testimony is still very essential to this investigation. here's senator lindsey graham. >> i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. martha: senator graham went on to say he is focusing on the four americans killed in benghazi and quote, we have a national security failure in the makings. lots of questions here. we'll examine them throughout the next two hours. gregg: that's right. we're also getting some new videotape of a home of the women at the center of this scandal. cameras catching shots of the charlotte, north carolina, house where paula broadwell lives with her husband. she spent a year with david petraeus writing the biography, all in. she is a 40-year-old graduate of u.s. military academy. an army reserve officer. she is married with two young sons. martha: petraeus's resignation raises a flood of questions about the intel community, the timing of this announcement and the investigation into benghazi. just a couple minutes we'll be joined live by former cia director m
. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today they want to have watergate style hearings on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and said that if you nominate susan rice to be secretary of state they will do everything in their power to block her nomination as the sender granted, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice at what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that. and with those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> for salon not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i will put forward to fill up my cabinet for the second term but those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with scale and professionalism and toughness and grace. -- with scale. as i said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to for. if senator mccain and senator graham and
. lindsey graham said the truth will never come out about that night if petraeus keeps quiet forever. >> you can't get to the bottom of benghazi without him testifying. i want to hear from gen. petraeus what he knew before, during and after the attack and there's no substitute for his testimony, in my view. >> paula broadwell emerged from her brother's northwest washington home yesterday. and in a strange bits, the twist with the other strange details, mrs. broadwell's north carolina driver's license was found by a jogger in rock creek park monday and authorities say they have no idea how long it had been there. >> thank you very much. i see one of the tabloids here is referring to this as real house lives of sitcom. >> but there are many unanswered questions. why is the white house and eric holder potentially getting a pass in all of this? it came out a few days ago that eric holder, the attorney general of this country, knew that the fbi was investigating the director of the cia but apparently as close a friend as he is of obama, he never told obama until two days after the election. do yo
in mind for 2014. among those that are up in 2014, mitch mcconnell, john cornyn, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss if we were sitting here four years ago we would have unanimity that he was the king of the republican party in kentucky and there wasn't even a contest for who was the elder li acknowledged leader, then we get to the 2010 elections and he put every resource that he could come every attempt come every string he could pull to keep rand paul from running and winning miserably. if you look at this from mccaul's perspectives note that several of the republicans that ran for the senate this time wouldn't promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell. and you know that you have the potential for a primary challenge in a party that you no longer control. your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromised. if you are john cornyn, you would have stayed out of the race for the republican nomination for the senate this time around but you sat back and watched as the conservative and powerful lieutenant governor, the most powerful togethe
graham from south carolina has been talking a lot about the shape of the republican party going forward. particularly after this election. i'll just throw up some numbers here while i'm on this subject. among latino voters, president obama won 71% of the latino vote. mitt romney, just 27%. with african-americans, it was more of a blowout, 93% for the president, 6% for mitt romney. last night with anderson, lindsey graham, the senator from north carolina, was sort of talking about this situation pp. let's listen. >> i think most hispanic voters, they didn't have a real fondness for president obama. i think they saw him a lesser of two evils between obama and us, because he didn't really lift a finger to do comprehensive immigration reform, like he promised. so we'll be back in the game. immigration is a national issue, it's just not an hispanic issue, it's an american issue, and there's a solution to be found out there if people want to find it. >> is it as simple as he says, lenny? will you get back in the game that easily? >> i think when it comes to our principles, when it comes to th
of a sudden republicans and democrats are talking about it. lindsey graham, he's trying to get together with chuck schumer to see if there's an opportunity. are you in favor right now of major legislation that would deal with comprehensive immigration reform, securing the border but also having a pathway to citizenship for some of those illegal immigrants who are in the country? >> wolf, several things. absolutely i am for comprehensive approach. let's stop making this a political issue. let's solve this issue. does have to include securing the borders. the president said he was going to present a proposal. let him present that proposal so we aren't negotiating with ourselves. but we in the republican party need to be clear that we welcome folks that want to come to this country and follow the rules and work hard and make this a better stronger country. our legal immigration system is broken. we need to dramatically increase the number of people we allow in this country legally. it's good for them, it's good for our country. right now our immigration policies aren't good for our country
